Halo Infinite players are in for another treat this week. A new event called Cyber Showdown will run from January 18 to February 1. Those who have are just fresh off the Fracture: Tenrai event last week should gear up again to collect a whole new arsenal of cosmetic rewards.
What’s New in Cyber Showdown?
343 Industries introduces a new game mode called Attrition. This is similar to Slayer mode except that your team shares a pool of limited lives. Kill enemies until their life pool is depleted, and then finish them off once and for all to win the match. Whenever a player revives a fallen ally, their team’s overall life pool decreases.
Aside from Attrition mode, Cyber Showdown also introduces players to a whole new reward track with cyber-themed rewards.
